Known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota boasts numerous parks and outdoor recreational venues, including Voyageurs National Park, where you can camp, boat, fish and hike. In addition to the Gopher State’s natural beauty, the major cities of Duluth, Minneapolis and St. Paul feature cultural attractions like the Maritime Visitors Center, Weisman Art Museum and Landmark Center.
Serving the Twin Cities, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is also the state’s main aviation gateway. The most convenient place to pick up and drop off a rental car, it is near the world-famous Mall of America, as well as the stadiums and arenas that host the Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves and Wild sports franchises.
The airport is situated near several major roadways, including Interstates 35 and 94. The road network connects visitors to the Twin Cities and other points of interest, such as the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth and Judy Garland’s birthplace in Grand Rapids.
